"Spring Fresco" (see details) (see related A | B), 1500 BC National Museum, Athens, Greece

Fresco found in situ in Akrotiri, an ancient city onThera or Santorini Island (see comments in "detail" image). The opulent use of colors and lively movement created by the lilies dancing in the wind and swallows at play are astounding. Note other elements representative of the "Theran" tradition.
